And how do the rest of the ACC's classes look?

While North Carolina slides in’s rankings, the remainder of the league continues to slog along, with the ACC ranked fifth among all conferences.

After watching some of Clemson’s recruits at the Shrine Bowl (DeAndre Hopkins, Martavis Bryant, etc.), it’s possible the Tigers could finish higher than their current No.22 rating.

Clemson is second in the league, behind No.17 Miami. Then come Florida State (25), Virginia Tech (27) and improving N.C. State (33).

Boston College is 37th, followed by Georgia Tech (41), Wake Forest (46) and Maryland (48).

Bringing up the rear are the Tar Heels (53, down from 34 earlier this month), Virginia (62) and Duke (63).

The SEC, of course, is the No.1 league, and member South Carolina is ranked 30th overall. Our other non-ACC major, East Carolina of Conference USA, is rated No. 100.
